Yukiko – Problems

PROBLEMS 困っていること
I feel it is troublesome when the kimono I often use fray at the hem. I have other kimono I could use, so I have to think about the value of the kimono before I repair it, because it costs so much. It is also possible to sew on ribbon, but I really wonder if it is worth investing time or money, when I can wear other ones. Then I am really not sure what to do with the ones I don’t repair. I couldn’t give them to someone like that, and deciding to pull them apart for silk pieces is a hard decision to take.

I also need to think about what to do with the kimono I will never wear again, such as the kimono is was taken to the shrine in, as a baby, my shichi, go, san kimono, furisode etc.

If I donate somewhere, I would like to find the right place where someone will treasure them. If I sell them to the secondhand market, I know they will be sold so cheaply that I feel sorry for my furisode. It will make me sad if they lose so much value.

よく着る着物の裾がすり切れることが悩みです。裾まわしを直すにはお金がかかります。テープを縫いつけるなどの方法もありますが、他に着る物がないわけではないので、お金や手間をかけてもなおしたい着物かどうか見極めなくてはなりません。また直さなかった場合、この裾がすり切れた着物をどうすればよいのか。。。差し上げるには申し訳ないし、布として使うために切り刻んでしまう決断もまだできません。

また、私の七五三のときの着物や夫のお宮参りの時の着物、私の振袖など、もう着られない着物をどうしたら良いかも考えなくてはなりません。どこかに寄付をするにも大切に扱ってくれるところでなくては嫌ですし、売るにしてもとても安くなってしまうので振り袖がかわいそうな気分になりそうです。
